Rockies hurt by failure to hit with runners in scoring position

CHICAGO — One big hit, in one big moment, would have won the game for the Rockies Monday night.

Would’ve, should’ve, could’ve.

Instead, the Rockies lost 3-2 to the Cubs, dropping their third consecutive game and falling back back to .500 (15-15). While the Rockies’ overall offensive offensive production has been historically bad in April, it’s also been a lack of clutch hitting that’s hurt them.

Monday night,  Chris Iannetta struck out looking with the base loaded in the fifth, and Nolan Arenado went down swinging with two on in the ninth. For the season, the Rockies are batting .235 with runners in scoring position and .206 with runners in scoring position and two outs.

Five takeaways from Monday’s game:

No. 1:  Outfielder Noel Cuevas (3-for-4) recorded a career-high three hits. He entered the game with just two
hits in 14 big-league at-bats.

No. 2: Rockies starting pitching has performed well in the first four games of the current nine-game road trip. Even though Colorado is 1-3, the rotation has a 2.53 ERA.
